Dr Sean B. Maynard, MACS Snr., MAIS

I research information security management from a human perspective. In this research I have focused on information security policy, information security culture and information security governance. My PhD is in Information Securty Management and focuses on Security Policy quality. Additionally, in conjunction with my past work on decision support systems and decision making I am interested in the decision making processes involved with information security and information security analytics.
